Drowsy Water Guest Ranch, Granby, Colorado
SUPERVISED KIDS’ CLUB Newborn to age 12 DISTANCE FROM AIRPORT 90 minutes LOWEST RATES May 27 to June 2 and August 19 to September 1 (children’s programs end September 1)
Your little cowboys will flip over this dude ranch two hours northwest of Denver. In the Buckaroo program, kids 5 and under take pony rides, play ranch games, and go on picnic hikes during the day while older ones hone their riding skills plus swim, raft, and learn archery. “Every guest gets
a horse for the entire week so they usually form a great friendship,” says co-owner Justin Fosha. Families come together for meals, including chuckwagon lunches and open-hearth barbecues. Sing-alongs, s’mores-roasting, campfires, and even a carnival keep everyone entertained until they hit the sack in a Western-style cabin.
Summer rates start at $340 per night per adult, $298 per night for ages 6 to 12, $185 per night for 2 to 5; $128 for newborn to 1; discounts for weeklong stays; drowsywater.com. Massages, guided fly-fishing, and zip-lining aren’t included.
